ERIK TEN THE HAGUE has unveiled a five-year plan to Manchester United bosses, according to reports.
The Dutchman is a big favorite to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as head of the Red Devils.
Ten Hague, 52, is available from Ajax for just £ 1.7 million in compensation.
And he reportedly set out his vision for United in a recent interview.
According to the Independent, Ten Hague believes that the Red Devils are miles away from competing for the Champions League.
They add that he presented his plan to bridge that gap, starting with improving the team’s physical condition.
Ten Hague has also made a number of meta transfers, including some of its Ajax stars.
SunSport revealed this week that his Wolves ace Ruben Neves is in first place.
The interview is believed to have caused mixed feelings among United bosses.
Some believe that Ten Hague may not have the necessary “character and experience” to take on such a big job.

While the interview also raised fears that he may lack charisma for Man United.
This is especially obvious when compared to former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pocketin.
United bosses are also aware that Eredivisie managers have a mixed reputation after entering the Premier League.
The last Dutch boss of the Red Devils, Louis van Gaal, recently warned Ten Hague not to perform at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal, 70, said: “I think Ten Hague is a great coach. A great coach is good for Manchester United. But they are a commercial club.
“It’s a tough choice for a coach. He should choose a football club, not a commercial club.”
